skoisirius (1716) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Draft at SIB07. Possible first ’Impy Wit’ I had? Hints of citrus and grains on the nose. A touch of orange and wheat, a hint of pepper, and lots of dirt and barnyard on the finish.

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Another of Jef Van Den Steen’s experiments in old-fashioned beer styles, this time a ’tarwedubbel’, the strong counterpart of witbier. Sticky, off-white, irregular head, colour of ’old gold’, hazy. Fruity aroma with spicy accents, wheat malt, curaçao, pineapple, cake, coriander, apple peel, peach, vanilla. Soft fruity taste, lightly sweet with fresh citrus touch, relatively sharp carbonation, alcohol well hidden, malty and wheaty base, velvety mouthfeel thanks to the oats, medium hop bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable and thirst-quenching.

AgentAle (687) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Aroma is straw, banana, clove and sweet graininess. Taste is sweet with a very smooth transition to bitterness. Body is a very pale gold with a very slight cloudiness.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
Bottle 0.75l. Pours almost clear golden with very fast vanishing white head. Looks like apple juice after a few seconds. Strange. Aroma is fruity, doughy, spicy, slightly cheesy. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet, spicy, fruity, grainy, coriander. Bit too sweet wit beer with rather strong carbonation. More bitterness would be good, unbalanced though.

kermis (5065) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Bottle sampled at De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast going towards saison and fruits. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Strength of the alcohol coming out in the palate suggesting trippel and dry in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

dEnk (3804) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting. Aroma is spices/herbs, some malt, some wheat, a bit yeasty. Flavour is fruity and floral hops, some malt, not much else. Boring.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Turbid light orange, brief white head. Orange peel, spices, wheat, subtle funk. Zesty with a creamy mouthfeel. Finish is bone dry. Interesting.

Buongiorgio00 (772) - - JAN 9, 2014
Pallida damigella molto intraprendente, dal carattere poco ortodosso. Gusto complesso e sofisticato, scorza di limone, frutta secca e spezie, tra le quali spicca un leggero pizzicorio di coriandolo. Il 7.5 gradi aleggiando come fantasmi, sorso dopo sorso, agendo di soppiatto. Assaggiata alla spina allo stand di Glazen Toren, è stata un’esperienza indimenticabile.
